My 5-year will be starting KINDERGARTEN soon!! I can’t believe it!! We’re reviewing sight words at home so that he’s ready for school when it starts in a few weeks. I found this adorable Feed the Shark game by Roaming Rosie and had to create something similar for Caleb. This is a great learning activity for Shark Week. Parents can change this activity for kids learning colors or their alphabets. Adjust according to your child’s needs.

- Recycled cardboard
- Acrylic paint (grey, white)
- Black paint marker
- Glue gun with glue sticks
- Buckets (one to hold sight word balls and the other to go behind shark)
- Table tennis balls
- Start by cutting a shark face from the recycled cardboard. Doesn’t have to be perfect.
- Next, cut out a mouth for the shark.
- I used a white cardboard to make the teeth but you can apply white paint to a regular cardboard.
- Glue the teeth cutout to the mouth of the shark.
- Now it’s time for the eyes of the shark. I used a 1.5 inch circle punch to create the eyes. Using scissors is fine.
- Use a pencil to draw a small circle on the eye in top right corner. Use the black paint marker to fill in the areas around the small circle to complete the shark eyes.
- Glue to eyes on the side of the shark face. See pictures below for an example.
- Attach the shark face to a bucket using tape.
- Finally, write the sight words on table tennis balls using the black paint marker. It’s time to feed the shark!
